Independence is Not Just for A Man, but For All Man
“…The natural progress of things is for liberty to yield, and government to gain ground…”
~ Thomas Jefferson / 3rd US President and American Founding Father ~
What could be one of the strongest proposal for a mankind to achieve a genuine liberty? Do we need to abolish a parliamentary state and displace them with an autonomous group of people to run the country? Or can we incorporate those ‘contrasting’ sets of idea and mold a country based on the consolidation and cooperation between state and society? According to one of the most influential founding fathers of America, Thomas Jefferson, freedom and liberty should the basis and cornerstone of every model for a great nation. We plant the “seed of freedom” and then the leaders (and it’s government) must cultivate it, build a solid and democratic leadership to govern the whole nation. So, the question is : what would be the perfect system to safeguard a genuine freedom? is it from anarchism? or socialism? or capitalism? *shrug*
In another philosophical thought, Thomas Jefferson amplified his proposition on freedom of mankind, by declaring : if mankind had achieved their freedom, the freedom of press would ensue. Unfortunately, in this century, that would even raise more question : how come if it indeed was a genuine freedom, the power is only confined to a few? Does freedom entail a control mechanism, wielded by the forceful “designer”?
